Compliance standards and regulatory guidelines help ensure organizations operate with the highest levels of corporate governance and standards of conduct.
The executive team is responsible for developing compliance policies and setting the tone for compliance. Management is responsible for setting high standards and developing procedures which empower employees to comply with regulations and standards which assure the entity protects its workforce, customers, shareholders, and the public.
Compliance is a Primary Internal Control Objective
According to COSO and The Green Book, compliance is one of three objectives that must be considered for each of the five internal control components and seventeen principles. A compliance system, along with efficient operations and reliable information reporting, are required to provide reasonable assurance to your auditors and the government that your entity can meet its objectives.
If you need an internal control system, you need a system to ensure compliance with laws, regulations, policies, procedures, and standards.
